felted shoulder bag kit

felted shoulder bag kit (£18)

You knit a bag (its very simple!) then felt it in your washing machine (exciting!) then decorate it with buttons and threads.

Keep it simple or elaborate - it is up to you! We have lots of tips and ideas on how to finish your bag here.

This felted bag is suitable for a beginner and still interesting for a more experienced knitter using double knitting wool from Isle of Harris Knitwear Company. There is a choice of three colours - a green tweed effect, a black tweed effect and a dark raspberry pink. The tweed effect is important! Once felted it really brings the colours out.

The kit contains all you need to make a lovely and unique felted shoulder bag including -
  • 2 x 50g ball of 100% pure wool
  • 5.5mm knitting needles
  • buttons, yarns, threads & knitters sewing needle
  • full instructions & how to knit guide

The Woolly Brew Felted Shoulder Bag kit is £18 and includes all you need to knit, felt and embellish your own bag. It is available in raspberry pink, green and black
